about

Eduardo Galeano's is considered a passionate literary voice. In "The Book of Embraces", he employs parable and paradox, anecdote and dream, and fragments of autobiography to construct a passionate, ironic and joyful world view. The world reveals itself in a multiplicity of voices; what emerges is a brief for love, friendship, courage, perseverance and imagination. Galeano also wrote "Memory of Fire".

From Our Editors

"The factual skeleton of the author's life is given flesh and blood in his strangely beautiful book, in which poetry, fiction, autobiography, history, fantasy and political commentary mingle and reinforce each other in unexpected ways".--The New York Times Book Review. Drawings

Editorial Reviews

[Galeano] is a dangerous radical storyteller, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, like Isabel Allende, and like Pablo Neruda before them. . . . The Book of Embraces is a mosaic, or Deigo Rivera mural in words. — John Leonard (New York Newsday)In The Book of Embraces, Galeano goes out on the tightrope and then levitates in the air above it. . . . [His] subject is nothing less that the variety of human life and love. — Alan Ryan (Washington Post Book World)

Employee Review

FROM: The Best Book I Ever ReadThis is a difficult book to categorize. It is fiction, autobiography, short story, poetry, history, fantasy and political commentary. It moved me to laughter, tears, wonder, anger, and joy. It is a book which is best digested in small doses, easily done as it is a series of vignettes, all less than two pages long. I have read the book multiple times, and always found some gem I had missed before. This has become my favorite book to give as a gift.
